||A lot has happened in the past week, but more than anything else, I wonder where the sanity in this world has gone.
1) George Bush said "Shit". Well, he was right. Syria needs to step up and take care of this shit. It is shit that Hezbollah has created a state within a state in Lebanon, and good for Israel for finally standing up to them.
2) Good for Israel! They did not forget what happened to their people over 60 years ago. It is amazing that countries like France and Russia forget what happens when you appease a regime that can not be appeased. Giving into terrorists does not work. Israel has made numerous appeasments in the quest for peace, and what happens, the Islamo-Facists want more and give up nothing. In Gaza, the Palestinians tunneled under the border and attacked a border crossing. Hezbollah launches missiles arbitrarily into the night and kill children, without regard. It's time that the Israeli citizens should be able to live in peace, and not have to sleep in bomb shelters for fear that a rocket will hit their home at night. I can not fathom what they go through night after night, but my prayers and sympathies are with them. Screw Russia, Screw France and Screw the UN.
3) Bush finally uses his veto power, on something that can truly help the citizens of this country. I am not in agreement with his decision to veto the ability of the National Science Foundation to fund stem cell research on embryos, the size of a period at the end of this sentence, that are going to be thrown out anyway. I respect his reasoning, but wholly disagree with his judgment. It's not like we are taking cells from aborted 3rd term babies. These are from fertility clinics from parents who are trying everything possible to have a child. Is it better to keep the embryo in a frozen state, or put it in a landfill?
Sometimes, I wonder why I have brought my children into this world.
